During the early stages following injury, relative physical and cognitive rest is recommended for 24 to 48 hours; however, these decisions are made on a case-by-case basis.

Following a short period of rest, treatment and rehabilitation may include a gradual increase in mental and physical activity. If symptoms persist beyond 10 days, exercise therapy, manual therapy of the neck, diet and nutritional interventions, and vestibular and visual rehabilitation are proven to be effective treatment and rehabilitation options.

There are currently no over-the-counter or pharmaceutical interventions to speed concussion recovery.

Our Amped physiotherapists will provide step-by-step processes and graduated stages of recovery to help concussion patients and athletes return to learn, work and/or play.

Our approach to concussion management may include:

  • Moderate, symptom-limited activity
  • Light cognitive activity
  • Half-day of school/work (with restrictions)
  • Full day of school/work (with restrictions)
  • Buffalo treadmill test (to assess for blood flow abnormalities and readiness to return to exercise)
  • Light, non-contact sport specific activity (athletes only)
  • Higher intensity, non-contact sport specific activity
  • High intensity physical exertion test (a physical exertion assessment which tests various systems and mimics game-like exertion and function) followed by immediate baseline retesting
  • Return to full contact and game

This process may vary by individual. We recommend that you schedule an appointment with us if you are at risk for concussion or have suffered a concussion.
